RLR speaks highly of him for his poise and two-way game. They compare him to Brandon Carlo, although they say he's a string bean who will take time to fill out.

RLR's first mock had us taking Matthew Robertson from Edmonton in the WHL. 6'3" 200 lbs. Lefty Colton Parayko type the said would be a steal they doubt actually slides to us.

Their second mock had us taking Tobias Bjornfot out of Djurgardens. 6'0" 196 lbs. lefty d-man they compared to Ivan Provorov. I'm skeptical they'd be that high on this guy because they do have a size range they prefer. He ain't it.

Top goaltender in the class is 31st ranked Spencer Knight of the USNTDP, who they compare to Martin Jones. He does fit the profile of what Frantz Jean likes, size-wise.

My knee-jerk prediction? A trade back into the second round to select goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov. 6'3" 205 lbs who they comp to Robin Lehner. The Lightning aren't scared off by Russians and aren't scared off by overagers, and he's both. Stepping up from the Sochi organization to SKA St. Petersburg's organization next year.
